As the other reviewer said, no killdeer in England, but plover. It was a good notion and pretty well executed. The portraits of Georgiana and Col Fitzwilliam are beautifully drawn and there is much philosophy within it. There were moments at the end that grew a little wordy but certainly not enough to warrant the loss of a star. I defy anyone not to fall in love with Fitzwilliam. And his parents were well shown, realistic. Very much enjoyed reading this one
A really enjoyable, thought provoking book. The idea of a vision is unusual and strange, but the author makes it believable. I loved Darcy's redemption, but I wanted more of Elizabeth's journey. But as it is told from Darcy's pov, we were not privy to Elizabeth's thoughts much. I also wanted more of their lives after they resolved their difficulties, but the epilogue was very good. I'm sure I'll read this again, and I'll look out for more of this authors work as this was so well written.
A good story. But the repetitive nature of the theme became a little irritating. I really liked this approach but would have preferred a less hit you over the head approach to its message of its never too late to change.
Was it a vision, or did he actually go back in time a changed man, so that he could fix his mistakes? We never find out the answer to this one. But it really doesn't matter. The story starts a year on from the start of Pride & Prejudice, and then abruptly shifts to the day Elizabeth arrives at Netherfield to nurse Jane a year earlier. It's a good read, and the actions of the new Darcy lead directly to the redemption of all but one character in the story (or two if you count Lady Catherine who appears briefly). Well written and in keeping with the time, apart from one or two Americanism (Killdeer, for example, are Plovers in England). Well worth a read, I reckon.
